Now, the RHOBH OG may be facing more sisterly drama, but this time around, it will be with her oldest sister Kathy Hilton, who recently joined the season 11 cast of RHOBH as a friend of the Housewives.
According to a source close to production, Kyle and Kathy have been butting heads while filming season 11.
“There’s definitely been a clash of egos while filming,” an insider confessed to Life & Style. “Kathy is a big personality, and Kyle is petrified she’ll try to steal her thunder. The sibling rivalry is already intense, and it’s bound to get worse!”
The dynamic between Kyle and Kathy is much different than Kyle and Kim’s relationship. An insider hints that Kyle may have felt superior to Kim as she battled with alcohol and substance abuse issues during their five seasons together on RHOBH.
However, the same can’t be said for Kathy, who’s glamour reportedly intimates her youngest sister.
Kathy is married to Rick Hilton and is also mom to uber-famous Nicky and Paris Hilton. Kyle’s husband Mauricio Umansky used to work for his brother-in-law Rick until he left Rick’s real estate firm, Hilton & Hyland, to found his own real estate brokerage, The Agency.
The move caused “a fight for a while” between Rick, Kathy, Mo, and Kyle.
“Kyle adores her nieces, but she feels like Paris and Nicky can help increase Kathy’s popularity, especially if they make a lot of appearances on the show,” the insider added. “She’s scared that the Hiltons will push her out of the spotlight.”
Kathy is currently only a friend of the Housewives, but it seems that she has her sights set on becoming a full-time Housewife. However, if Kyle has her way, Kathy will remain a friend of the wives.
“In Kyle’s mind, there’s only room for one Richards sister as the star of the show, and it’s going to be her!” the insider claims.
The source also notes that Kyle has gotten used to her queen bee status on the show and eager to maintain said status.
“Kyle is controlling, and when she senses she’s losing power, she freaks out,” the source added. “But Kathy won’t tolerate anyone bossing her around, especially her younger sister. She does what she wants when she wants.”
The insider concluded by revealing that Kyle is planning on bringing in reinforcements for some support against Kathy.
“Kim is expected to make an appearance or two on season 11, just like she has on other seasons,” the source explained. “All three sisters constantly argue and will go for months without speaking, but Kyle and Kim are getting along at the moment, and Kyle expects Kim to take her side with the Kathy situation. The producers are ready for it. The bigger the family drama, the higher the ratings!”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
